Today’s notorious and ludicrous decision by the U.S Supreme Court not only renders its own court irrelevant but it communicates a legal death-blow to traditional marriage. One man and one woman, defined by Christ, Himself:
“And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.” – Gospel of Matthew 19:4-6 – KJV
Human laws never supersede divine laws. Legality is never to be equated with the divine moral law, as set forth in The Ten Commandments (and otherwise) in Holy Scripture. Disciples of Christ will not allow themselves to be defined and ruled by human laws which are often contrary to divine laws.
This Moralmatters author’s wife had the following to say about today’s horrendous Supreme Court decision:
“The Supreme Court bypassed the DOMA decision. They passed it on to lower state courts to decide. When state courts decided gays were ‘not married’ the LGBT community started to scream ‘discrimination!’
The SCOTUS said gay marriage is legal NATIONWIDE.
Since the SCOTUS said gay marriage is legal, then it follows that heterosexual marriage is not legal because the Supreme Court never defined marriage when it had the opportunity to do so.
Today the SCOTUS defined marriage as per ‘gay.’ This decision is a direct assault on the sanctity of Holy Matrimony as designed by God and taught by Jesus Christ.”
